Japanese and Jordanian foreign ministers discuss Palestinian refugees

Japanese and Jordanian foreign ministers discuss Palestinian refugees

Tokyo, Mar 14 (Prensa Latina) Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi and his Jordanian counterpart, Ayman Al Safadi, talked about assistance to Palestinian refugees, local media reported on Tuesday.

The Japanese foreign minister highlighted Jordan’s efforts to host displaced people from the neighboring Arab nation, who are facing an increasingly severe environment due to the recent increase in fuel prices, according to the NHK news network.

It also explained that Japan has provided Jordan with some 10.44 million dollars in the fiscal year 2022 to care for Palestinians running away from the conflict with Israel.

According to a statement from the Japanese Government, the financial assistance will be channeled through international organizations such as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

In this regard, Safadi stated that Jordan values and appreciates Japan’s ongoing support. At the same time, he referred to the importance of the rest of the international community continuing to support refugees and host countries.

Both sides expressed their deep concern over the heightened tensions between Israel and Palestine and the serious security situation in that region of the Middle East.

They also discussed the various initiatives that their respective governments have taken to build confidence between the contenders and restore calm, such as the multilateral political meeting organized by Amman last February and the ‘Corridor for Peace and Prosperity’ to be promoted by the Asian country.

During the meeting, held on Monday night, the ministers also analyzed strengthening bilateral relations through enhanced strategic partnership, exchange of high-level delegations, cooperation in multiple areas, including politics, economy and security, and more academic and cultural exchanges.
